Leicester City FC’s golf club renovates its bunkers

Durabunker recently won a very unique contract, working with former Premier League champions, Leicester City FC, at Park Hill Golf Club. The venue was acquired by Leicester City FC with the site being used to house new state of the art training facilities, the renovation of the outer nine holes of the golf course being an integral part of the club’s plans.

Having looked at several options it was decided that Durabunker synthetic bunker edging, and DuraLiner, one of several liners the company offers, would be the core components of the construction methodology for all bunkers at the venue. Durabunker also worked alongside the principle golf course contractor, Waterfield Solutions, during the initial stages of the project, enabling them to complete the remainder of the installation themselves.

Rhydian Lewis, owner of Durabunker, commented “This really was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Being part of a project involving a Premier League side and having a tour of the ‘almost complete’ site this Summer, was quite breath taking, the facilities look incredible”

“The golf course itself has a generous number of bunkers, all lined with Duraliner, a fabric bunker liner we have used for several years, in a number of countries. Each bunker was then sealed with our synthetic bunker edging system, which has now been used across Europe for over 10 years, with 100% success rate, without exception.

“The variety of bunker products we offer, as well as multiple execution models, allow us to develop packages according to specific client requirements. Our market leading value, in relation to synthetic bunker edging and a range of bunker liners to suit all budgets, means clients can customise their projects, as was the case at the Leicester City FC project which has resulted in premier league bunkers for the former Premier League champions!”
